Hunting in Ponderosa Hills

The PHCA has been informed that hunting (gun or arrow) is allowed on private rural property. However, the bullet or arrow must not leave the property. If the injured animal wanders onto adjacent property, permission must be granted to go onto that property. The Board at PHCA strongly requests that hunters notify adjacent property owners in advance and be extremely mindful of the safety of children, domestic pets and residents of our community.

 

Water Adjudication

Many of the property owners in Ponderosa Hills participated in two rounds of adjudicating (negotiating legal rights) to the water in aquifers under their property. For a list of properties with adjudicated rights go to the Water Adjudication link on the Water Issues banner tab.

Water rights were adjudicated with a view to eventually use the rights to either develop a community well or to use them to negotiate water rights from a municipality. Properties that did not

adjudicate would pay a premium to participate in a community water project. Water rights for a property that has not been already adjudicated may still be adjudicated but must be done on an individual basis and at a current cost of several thousand dollars.
